Winter is also a good time to take care of your body. Guests who take care of their health will pay more attention to maintaining health

Hotels can also combine existing sports programs or resource packages to use them.

Creating a set of in-store activities that can retain customers will also be very popular

→Upcoming events

If hotel's own store space is too small for above-mentioned large-scale events, you can also use surrounding resources to absorb time

You can also negotiate prices with farmers and organize guests to pick strawberries. At same time, hotel can communicate with surrounding hot springs

Cooperate with ski resorts or other popular scenic spots, purchase tickets at right price, and pack these tickets into a room type

When leaving in winter, worst thing is inconvenience of travel. Therefore, hotel can also provide a transfer service depending on situation

Including round trip transportation hubs, scenic parks, etc.

2. Esports room: meet local needs of young guests

The epidemic has affected mobility of remote places and over long distances, and many young people have remained in area, especially college students

Forming a group to "open black" is also an important pastime for them. Last week, news of EDG's victory was instantly flashed in Moments, which also confirmed high demand for esports

Esports halls should be equipped with professional computers, gaming tables and chairs
